    can anyone recommend some decent headphones in the £40-£60 bracket? really dont think the £8 numark ones I got free with my set-up are doing me any favours!

    yea they're the ones i've got at the moment, proper shit! same really, only had my set-up a few months, making alot of progress but defo think i'll improve more with some better phones. Might have to give those ones a try, will see if anyone else has any other suggestions before deciding which ones to go for tho!

    yea but £140 tho! i've seen the downgrade of those, the hd25sp's, on sale for £70, might get them. still a bit more than i am looking to spend, but you have to pay for quality i suppose!

    errrrrrr.
    sennheiser sennheiser sennheiser sennheiser sennheiser sennheiser sennheiser sennheiser sennheiser sennheiser sennheiser sennheiser sennheiser sennheisersennheiser sennheiser sennheiser.

    seriously. you won't look back. they'll last the the test of time (a mates had his for at least a good 3 years) the quality is unmatched.
    it sounds like a big deal, but headphones are one of, if not the most vital elements to your mixing.
    don't fuck around, buy sennheiser. be happy.

    i know i am.

    if i was you i WOULDN'T get the numark upgrade headphones (PHX) they have good sound quality but the sides snapped...one by one...which means i couldnt adjust it to my head properly...bit annoying to say the least.

    If anyone is looking to spend over £100 then i'd reccommend panasonic RP-HC500E-S..they've got digital noise cancelling (92%) which are really good when cue-ing & in the mix (especially for me as i've got tinnitus!)

    sennheiser are good phones too for the price, they use them at my college and havn't let me down so far!
